Senate planning vote on Internet sales tax bill

The days of tax-free online shopping could finally be numbered.

The Senate is planning to vote on a bill as soon as Monday that would give states the authority to collect sales taxes on all Internet purchases, handing local governments as much as $11 billion per year in added revenue that they are legally owed — but that hasn’t been paid to them for years.

Since before the dawn of Internet shopping, the basic rule was that as long as a retailer didn’t have a physical presence in the state where the consumer was shopping, the company wouldn’t have to collect a sales tax. Technically, shoppers are supposed to track these purchases and then pay the taxes owed in their annual tax filings. Few people, however, do this or are even aware of it. ...

And States are constantly in search of new revenue streams because it's much easier and more politically expedient to do that than to cut spending. I recently heard of at least one state that wanted to try to tax RAIN WATER that fell on your house/land.

States don't pay for anything, for starters. They take much, and give some back. There are a multitude of taxes and fees already, without taxing you for breathing, which is all the tax out of State move amounts to. Don't forget you already pay sales taxes to the State in which you bought the product. For example when someone from Ohio buys an item in NY, he will pay NY sales tax. That should be enough. But it never is enough, and that is the issue.

Let competition between States determine who buys what where. No one will go from a State that charges 5% sales tax, to buy something in one that charges 8%. The move to tax internet and out of State purchases is for the purpose of reducing the loss of revenue to the high tax States. Why shouldn't they suffer the consequences of their actions?

Technically, that's ridiculous. If you aren't buying something in your State, you shouldn't owe your State anything. NY wants taxes paid regardless of where the product is purchased, even if you are travelling in another State, buy something, and bring it home. There is even place for it on tax returns. That's not a sales tax, it's a tax on you, for being a resident.
There seems no end to government greed, and novel ways of theft of that which belongs to others.

I dont think closing these loopholes is 'greed' but rather need. Personally, I think they should close the loopholes and LOWER the tax rate(I know, dreamer)

Update: http://arstechnica.com/tech-policy/2013/04/senate-passes-online-sales-tax-by-74-20-vote/

The real issue isn't the sales tax so much as how difficult it is to calculate the sales tax for anyone but a huge company. Companies want the government to create some degree of sanity to make calculating tax easier.

For example, where I live there is 1 day per year with a tax holiday for "back to school" sales. If I buy a Dover math book that day, I pay full sales tax, but if someone buys a computer to play games, they don't pay tax. Imagine how hard it would be to calculate sales tax!

No, no, no!
Those people so not deserve or need anymore of our hard earned money. They already steal enough for their lavish vacations, high end dinners, and ridiculous pork barrell projects.
